Discovery Playground Fundraiser!


As a result of Discovery Playground growing, we are in a situation where in order to become a full time daycare, the City of Fayetteville is requiring us to install a sprinkler (fire safety) system throughout the entire building.

We have received three quotes from licensed sprinkler contractors ranging in price from $42,000 to over $60,000.  Especially after installing the playground in the back, this is simply money we do not have, and therefore have decided to do a fundraising project to help with the costs.

The whole fundraiser thing is something new to us, and at this point we're not sure exactly what we're going to do, but we have to do something.

A few ideas that come to mind:


Bake Sale

50/50 Raffle

Buckets for Giving

Gift Basket Auction

Hot Dog stand

How many Jelly Beans in the jar?

Parents night out

Pen, Keychain, etc


Note that proceeds collected from the Fundraiser are not tax deductible, but be assured that all money will go directly towards the sprinkler system installation and construction costs of a few renovations (knocking out walls and such) in the section next door.
